I heard from an old professional, that so far he has come to prefer a type of cable, very rare and exclusive, not directly available to customers - one that is extremely fine-haired, very thin silver-plated copper “strings”, a great multitude of which is wound such that it’s like…
Consider 2 conductors twisted. Symmetrically. Same length conductors. Then 3… 4… This one is practically n twists. Then “pressed VERY tightly together” with a hard braid of (he didn’t know) kevlar or something.
Now, to me this sounds like a cable that approaches solid-core properties but with the “benefit” of being divided in a multitude of fine strings. Seems counter-intuitive… There’s “micro-arcing” and such necessarily between the conductor “hairs” right? What benefit is there? I guess despite inductance between the strings, proximity effect and such, would the signal still maintain flow within each string or would the signal be urged to consider it a whole, thick structure with the skin effect coming to play across the structure?
I’m intrigued, but doubtful. Then again, this speaker builder has been doing this for decades, I trust his observations. But how come this thpe of cable could be so good?
Sorry, no info or pictures. Not available, only what he’s told.
